But before you get overwhelmed, know that there are simple changes you can make here and there to reduce your exposure and risk, such as choosing your food and skin care products wisely. And I'm here to introduce you to an awesome brand of skin care that will help you do just that!!
Nine Naturals skin care products for pregnancy and beyond are 100% plant based with no sulfates, phthalates, parabens, DEA, petrochemicals, synthetic ingredients, or artificial preservatives. All ingredients are screened for safety during pregnancy and breastfeeding and are formulated specifically for both natural purity and high performance (because what's the point if it's all-natural but doesn't do what it's supposed to do!?). They also practice ingredient transparence, by listing ALL ingredients on each bottle and describing what exactly each of those ingredients is in the ingredient glossary on their website.
From shampoo and conditioner to belly butter, body wash, moisturizer, deodorant, lip balm, and sunscreen, Nine Naturals has seriously got every type of skin care product under the sun! Many have an unscented version, as well as yummy scents such as Citrus + Mint, Mandarin + Ginger, and Vanilla + Geranium - YUM!
I recently had the opportunity to test out two of their unscented products: the Natural Belly Oil and the Moisturizing Body Cream.
